MASK EXEMPTION FOR AIRCRAFT
We have recently been made aware that airlines are directing you to your GP to get medical certificates/letter/notes to exempt you from wearing a face covering on the aircraft.
YOUR GP/NURSE WILL NOT BE PROVIDING THIS.
Please respect that we are extremely busy with an already overbearing workload and your GP’s and healthcare professionals are NOT in a position to facilitate these requests.
The British Medical Society are currently speaking with government to stop the airlines from sending out these communications to the public.
Source pulse magazine: ‘The BMA has said the Government should remind travel companies that people do not require proof from a doctor, ‘especially amid the huge workload pressures facing practices, and as overseas travel increases over the summer’.
